Old statues and temples reside far below the surface, sunken and forgotten by all of Tyria. No, not by all of them. There is a being that still patrols the sunken remains, that descends once every hundred year to the surface to make sure these old places of worship won´t disappear forever. There might be gates he is guarding, catching the last specs of sunlight from the surface of the sea, a giant gate with ornaments of clams and seahorses all around: his domain where he reigns, the God in the Deep.
He might resemble a Sylvari if you look closely, but he is probably much more than that. While the ocean seems to shimmer on his shoulders and legs he only uses his weapons against those who deserve it. On land he never takes his helmet off, who knows if he can even breathe without it. It won´t be long until this mysterious figure won´t be seen wandering along the shores anymore, but descends again to guard the gate.


After I had so much fun with my seawitch I tried to go with another aquatic Sylvari. I tried to make him look as much as a creature from the ocean as possible, hence the noseless face (because that felt more merman-ish to me). I just loved this helmet, with these finlike appendages it really feels like something aquatic (thanks for Acethyle for making me aware of the great features of this piece!).
I tried to throw in some aspects that almost felt like Greek mythology gods to me and felt he had a very regal, guardlike look to him. In retrospect I kinda wish I would made him another class, because the weapons of an engineer didn´t go 100% with what I had in mind for him, but I still tried to match them up as well as I could.
The bright contrast of his glow and hair is to resemble corals.
I hope you enjoy him, I really get the hang of aquatic Sylvary!

The places you have chosen for your screens...What can I say I have no words. It fits perfectly!
As usual I love his story, he really looks like a sea god. I love how you used the zodiac pieces, it really adds something to the armor and makes it look so unique. I love the stones on the boots too!
Female sea goddess and duo look incoming... ;P
